Opsvik & Jennings: A Dream I Used To Remember

Read "A Dream I Used To Remember" reviewed by Mark F. Turner

Like architects in sound, melody, and composition, multi-instrumentalists Eivind Opsvik from Oslo, Norway and Aaron Jennings, from Tulsa Oklahoma, artfully blend technology (electronics, software) and acoustic instruments (including bass, drums, banjo, guitar) to create unique constructs that are ...

Opsvik & Jennings: Commuter Anthems

Read "Commuter Anthems" reviewed by John Kelman

In an unusual move, Norway's Rune Grammofon label has released an album recorded in New York City. But while multi-instrumentalist/sound manipulator Aaron Jennings hails from the American Midwest, there is a Scandinavian connection. Residing in New York for nearly a decade, and establishing himself as a flexible bassist with artists including saxophonist David Binney and pianist ...

Commuter Anthems is the sophomore follow up to Floyel Files (NCM East, 2005), the debut recording of the duo of Norwegian-born bassist Eivind Opsvik and guitarist Aaron Jennings, originally hailing from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
